| Events in Takeley | 10 Places to Stay

Takeley is a small village close to Bishops Stortford and nearly in Essex. It has Bronze Age, Iron Age, Roman and Neolithic roots and was first acknowledged by the Normans in about 1086. The village has since decreased in size significantly from those days due to its land being absorbed by the Stansted airport expansion Contrary to the development is Hatfield Forest – a National Trust country park. Sadly in December 1999, a Boeing 747 taking off from the nearby airport, crashed into the forest killing all on board. However, the Forest is of scientific/historical interest as there is a late prehistoric settlement. It is well worth a visit, with nature trails to see the abundance of wildlife, miles of walks and a fishing lake (created in 1746). Entry to all this is free. It is the only remaining “Royal Hunting Forest” from Norman times and Hatfield Forest is mentioned in the Doomsday Book. 31 miles away from London this quiet little village has a primary school founded in 1869, a football club and a cricket club, established in 1880. There is a church, a restaurant, 2 pubs and guesthouses called The White House and Stansted Guest House, ideally located less than 2 miles away from Stansted airport.
